WWL China Grand Prix 2016

2016 World Wingsuit League (WWL) China Grand Prix was held October 13-16 in Zhangjiajie, China.

The 5th WWL China Grand Prix finished with sunny skies and perfect jumps. After a week of bad weather, the clouds finally moved away and the Tianmen Mountain showed its beauty and charm. We were not able to complete Slalom challenge earlier last week and we had to adapt and modify our racing format within the timeframe we had.
